David Howell is a loving husband, father to six amazing children, and has a passion to help others and serve his community. He is a Pro-Life advocate, Pro-2nd Amendment Rights, and understands that there are fundamental rights given to us throughout the Constitution. David will fight to protect our rights.
David believes that now is the time for us to join together and "Do More" for our communities, more for our business owners, more for our education system, more for our cities, and more for Arkansas.
David knows we don't need another candidate who is running against something, we need someone who is running for something.
We need someone who will stand up for strong Christian values, and who will be the voice of the people when serving in the Arkansas House of Representatives.
